How to foster emotional wellness:
- Learn relaxation and stress management techniques.
- Cultivate an awareness of your thoughts and feelings through mind-body tools and programs.
- Develop confidence in your abilities.
- Practice expressing both negative and positive feelings constructively, with assertive communication.
- Take responsibility for and learn from your decisions, without self-critical thoughts.
